Hailed as the most successful exhibition of photography ever assembled, The Family of Man opened at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, in January 1955. This book, the permanent embodiment of Edward Steichen's monumental exhibition, reproduces all of the 503 images that Steichen described as "a mirror of the essential oneness of mankind throughout the world. Photographs made in all parts of the world, of the gamut of life from birth to death." A classic and inspiring work, The Family of Man has been in print for more than forty years. The New York Times once wrote that it "symbolizes the universality of human emotions."
This Book of the Month Club Deluxe Edition is distinguished from the trade edition by the unique cover design in black, white, silver, gold and copper metallic inks, photographic endpapers, a portfolio at the end with photographs by Ezra Stoller of the exhibition itself, and gravure printing on heavier paper.
